    Community Advisor (Current Employee)

    ProsThe Pro Staff are constant in their dealings with students and are willing to really sit down with student workers and help them work through issues in performance. They really do care about the people on an individual level. Most of the time, stuff that you are not getting directly paid for is covering your housing.

    ConsAt times, it does bleed into your social life, and the job at time does carry stigmas that are a little difficult to overcome.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Great way to get work experience as a student

    Student Assistant (Former Employee) West Juneau, AK

    Pros- Flexible work schedule.
    - Your education comes first.
    - Great bosses.
    - Raises every year (to a point).

    Cons- No more than 20 hours a week during the school year.
    - Many clients (faculty) are surprisingly verbally aggressive.

    People are very nice, but it doesn't make up for the politics that take place on campus and in some departments.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Sitka, AK

    ProsGreat with flexible scheduled hours on campus

    ConsNo telecommute option for the majority of workers. Low pay for cost of living there.

    Advice to Senior ManagementQuit fooling yourself, your staff puts up with a lot because they have no where else to work and don't want to rock the boat.

    All the security and spectrum of personalities you'd expect at an institution like this.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Juneau, AK

    ProsUAS is essentially a state job so there is a strong sense of security in the position, and we are not particularly over burdened with work. The access to activities as a younger employee is unparalleled as the student population keeps you feeling young and opens opportunities to join in things like whalewatches, comedians and musical performers. After 10 years the annual leave is boosted dramatically, so that's a plus.

    ConsAs with any bureaucracy, there are a lot of decisions that were either made before your time which cement's the choice in perpetuity. In some departments, the option to move anywhere internally doesn't exist, so once you're in a job, there is no intentional advancement. And 'communication challenges' is frequently cited by staff, but persists in being a tough topic to 'fix'.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep the information coming. The current provost has a newsletter which is a great model for sharing changes around campus. It would be great to see other managers modeling this as well for their particular scope.
